Defconbot[edit]

I wanted to ask you if you could track the number of reverts that cluebot NG has made. You could then divide that by the number of edits, and you could report that as the amount of vandalism. Thanks!Creeper919 (talk) 00:19, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

@Creeper919: DefconBot tracks absolute vandalism (based on reverts by ClueBot NG) to give the defcon value. You might be interested in this tool though, that tracks vandalism in relation to reverts. Am I Needed To Counter Vandalism?
If you want to come up with other metrics, you can use my live stat tool. 930913 {{ping}} 12:44, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
From what you say, this new AmINeeded tool could be very useful, as Defcon tends to just reflect the daily rise and fall of traffic and doesn't necessarily tell us if patrolling is keeping up with the need or not. Will it be publicised? What measures is it based on? Can it be displayed as a handy small icon on a user page rather than a full screen?: Noyster (talk), 20:05, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Bracketbot message[edit]

Hey - I'm wondering if Bracketbot's message should be linking to syntax (programming languages) rather than syntax. What do you think? "Pepper" @ 21:45, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks from me too ReferenceBot. I'll get source documentation back into my article just as soon as I can get too it--may be a day or two.--Friend of Prlitecky — Preceding unsigned comment added by Prlitecky (talkcontribs) 18:51, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

@Prlitecky: I'm not entirely sure what that page is meant to be, but I don't think it's in the right place. Some of the content could possibly be used to improve our coverage of Arnold Schwarzenegger, but I don't think we should have a separate article on this one aspect of his career.

Comment/question: I think that the ReferenceBot wanted me to fix an ISBN number. I have tried to do so but I am unsure if it has worked.

This is old news; the message was from February, and it was fixed long ago. Huon (talk) 12:52, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Comment/question:I think it is a false positive as the reason it seems to me these errors arise (as I recently sent into "help") is because I diligently complete as much as I can that is required under the citing of references box-filling part of adding sources on Wikipedia

Blamethemessenger (talk) 02:17, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for improving citations in Wikipedia articles. The bot is just reporting minor formatting errors. You can use e.g. |page=101 for a single page or |pages=100-108 for a range of pages, but not both. The ISBN is shown as e.g. |isbn=978-1-234-56789-7, not isbn13. For future reference, complete details of the cite book template are at Template:Cite book: Noyster (talk), 10:25, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
Fixed: [1][2] The "format=" parameter is meant for the file format of online sources (say, PDF) and thus requires an URL. Similar parameters for print sources are "language=" (if there could be any confusion about the source's language; English is usually assumed to be the default) and "edition=".
